Nikon 35mm f/1.8 DX on Full Frame - AWESOME!

I wanted to share this with my fellow Nikon FF users.

I had an engagement part planned but my EOS R + M50 were travelling on a conference and I only had my D600, and since I switched to Canon, I sold all my lenses, except for one that I kept for the D3400, the small dirt cheap 35mm f/1.8 DX.

So I put it on and shot with the D600 thinking it was in crop mode, but half way in, I noticed my DOF was much shallower and the images had more Pop than on DX, and it's a bit wide for portraits, and yes, it was in FX mode.

The lens performs admirably, with just a little bit of corner shading that improves portraits really, and easily correctable, I used FF lenses with more shading than this, which begs the question, why is this a DX designated lens when it works flawlessly on FX cameras, with even great corner sharpness?

So, if you want a cheap 35mm say for street photography & portraiture, just get a DX one. AF is also flawless .
